A Saturday Afternoon on the River


Brian

Recommended Posts

Bit of a last minute thing.

We had some friends over who had never been on the Broads before.

Richardsons came to my rescue.

Providing Melody to hire on a Saturday Afternoon for family and friends.

Clive i certainly owe you one.

Simon, Dan, It was very enjoyable. Lots of other boats about. With about 75% of them being hire craft.

Melody is a really good layout, the massive sliding sunroof made the inside like being outside :)

Dan

Wherez Jimbo when you need a comment hey ? :lol:

THe Stern of the boat was massive, and would make a ideal fishing area, with the overhang, it also made it weather proof as well.

Fantastic Boat :)
